My name is David ... and I'm a journalist

There's a lot of little things going on at once, so I'll try to update everyone here as best as I can. Ready? Here we go ...

First off, for those of you out there who have been following the problem I had w/ my arm, things are much better now. I've done the antibiotics for a couple of weeks now, and everything is returning to normal. The only real lingering effect is some minor swelling and some nerve issues. I've got a decent sized area near my shoulder that's completely numb, and the surrounding area is sensetive and tingling all the time. The reason for those problems has to do with pressure that was (and still is to a small extent) pushing against a nerve in my arm. With the swelling going down, the pressure has eased up and circulation is returning to normal ... so the nerves should start getting back to normal after a little bit of healing.

Now, on to the writing ... I've had a couple of things go live over at GameSpy in the past couple of weeks. I'll post links soon, though I'm also waiting for a couple of extra things to go up first. Also, I'll likely be doing a lot of extra writing for Games Radar in the upcoming future. And if you missed my debut entertainment article for the Florida Times-Union, you can find it archived online here.

And in an interesting twist of fate, I got a message from a former editor of mine asking me to come onboard as an editor for an upcoming magazine, with my focus (initially at least) being news and events in the comic industry. The work would also be non-exclusive, so I could do my regular video game, entertainment, etc. writing ... basically my usual freelance gigs ... without any conflict. I'm weighing things out before I commit completely, but I should start working with the editor pretty soon either way.

That about wraps it up for now (plus, I need to head out for a quick bit). I'll post more later.
